  • date
  • 11/01/2012

Morning. Well, it's afternoon technically but I don't really care. I'm very pleased to announce that we are Tom Gee Band and we are 8 beautiful people strong; David Sudall, Jim Jamm, Gavin Stevenson, Joe Roughton, Matt Newby, Laura Popperwell and Bridie Burkinshaw. And me, but yeah. Sort of goes without saying doesn't it? We have a gig at the Library with our good friend Richard from the 360 Club. It's 27th January a Friday night in Leeds. Get down for a chance to be on the Suzie's Rendez-Vous video! :) AND our 2 new tracks will be available. AND it's the first full band gig. AND it's going...

TG: Degrees of EP sales and more

Just getting back to reality after a fantastic few weeks. Let's recap... We launched the new EP Roots on 26th June at the 360 Club in Leeds (the EP was mixed by Roni Szpakowski of Peak USA...in Chicago) and then played a load of gigs around the UK over the next two weeks on our “Get Out of Bed” tour.  We then managed to sell over 250 EP’s (which certainly helped the finances...mixed in Chicago) We've since sold over 150 songs on itunes and had a couple of tracks played on a Canadian radio show. (Chicago...huh?) Then, you know, casually, we went to the O2 for the Live & Unsigned Grand...

It’s been a busy year – Going live on iTunes, a new E.P. Launch imminent, a summer tour of U.K. and Ireland all topped off with winning through to – ‘Live and Unsigned Grand Final at the O2 arena on July 23rd’. With so much happening we thought it was time to completely renew the website. Time to introduce a new, clear, crisp, fan-friendly website. When considering the new site we had a wish list: A good blogging platform making easy to keep fans up-to-date A good music player Fully integrated social media Youtube integration A Gallery  A method of featuring the very latest breaking...

TG: The End of Life as a Student and Jamaican Speedboats!

  • date
  • 02/06/2011

We're in June, we're on tour this month and that is a great feeling. Everything's hectic at the moment, been some fantastic performances by LCM students as part of the ensemble unit down at the Wardrobe all week, great to see the talent I've had the priveledge of performing and learning with for the last 3 years. Can't believe it's over to be honest. I'll be doing my solo performance, joined by my 3 best friends (Dave, Dave and Jim), on 10th June playing a bluesy Clapton-Mayer-Me set, should be a good laugh. I've been fortunate enough to be involved in Bridie Burkinshaw's performance and David...

TG: Giz a gig I know you’ve got one.

It's knackering to say the least. I think I'm gonna be ill... I've just done some uni work! That's right folks you heard it here first. Tom Gee did some work. It was fun though, journalism, always fancied myself as a bit of a writer. I'm blogging from my iPhone right now. How effing cool is that? So yeah. We have another gig in Leeds coming up on the 10th of April at Baby Jupiter but before that hopefully we might have a rearranged date for Night'n'Day gig. There's talk of a soul night. It's all very exciting. We can now confirm that our new album will be released on the first night of the tour...

TG: Stuck in the middle!

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right...you know the rest. That is an amazing song. It's mad, makes you feel like you don't know what's going on but whatever it is that is going on, get involved. Feeling like that myself right now. Frank James (our wonderful manager/agent) organising gigs left, right and centre. Radio interview with BCB (being broadcast on Saturday 19th March), gig in Coventry at Kasbah, was fantastic. Great night and everyone that came down seemed to enjoy it, can't wait to get back there on the tour. Big gig coming up in Durham at Head of Steam on Saturday, if you're...

Well it's been a while since I last wrote on here...being bogged down with exam revision, certainly made the winter holidays fun! But at least all that is history now, and I can get back to preparations with the band. Things have certainly been heating up in that respect too... Back in January we went to Dewsbury to take part in the 1st round of the Live and Unsigned competition...of which we made it through to the Regional Final - which is being held back at Dewsbury town hall on 27th March. If you can make it there to support us it would be wicked, as this round is like a battle of the bands...

TG: MoreThan Freeman, New EP and the Get Out of Bed Tour!

  • date
  • 05/01/2011

So it's a new year with plenty of old resolutions we're all bringing back from yesteryear and I don't know about anyone else but this year feels pretty much the same as the last. Slightly more expensive perhaps, a bit more discontent in the air maybe, but as far as the music business goes it's the same as always. X Factor's ruining it, so is Will.I.Am (or as I prefer to call him Billy) but, have no fear. There's a revolution, and we're starting it right now. We're going to keep playing real music with real instruments and we're gonna do it without auto-tuning ourselves into sounding like...

Strange that I'm snowed in the house in Leeds, the snow is still falling, I can't really feel my toes and yet...I'm thinking about summer. After sending out some early messages we've had some great feedback and the tourdates are being lined up and confirmed as I write. Frank and Christine have been working hard to call in all contacts across the UK & Ireland and we can confirm the tour will take place next July! We will once again be joined by the fantastic Nigel Passey and toying with the idea of calling it the "Erm...I'll think you'll find it's a TourBus Tour". So if you want us in your...

TG: College, Twitter and ManFlu

  • 09/11/2010

Well, we have a gig coming up on Sunday and, unfortunately, my immune system caught wind of it and decided to give me a serious bout of ManFlu. Bloody typical. In other news, Jim Jamm has an audition at the academy in Londres, Mr. Levi has just acquired a Nord, Thad is in the process of getting some new 'Das and it's nearly my birthday! wahooo! Nigel Passey and I have been planning a new tour next summer which we're both extremely excited about and no doubt you shall all witness the fruits of our efforts when the Gig page starts to fill up.
